What Is It? Shorts or a Skirt...?

Polka Dot Suspender Shorts: Thrifted.
Hot Pink Tank: Target.
Big Double Pearl Necklace: Thrifted.
Black Patent Heels: Thrifted.
Black Bow Headband: Claire's.
Clip On "Diamond" Earrings: Thrifted.
About two weeks ago I thirfted this...oh I don't know what you would exactly call it. Polka dot shorts that look like a skirt attached to suspenders piece? It's going to be fun wearing this back to school because all of our skirts and dresses must touch our knees. I'm crossing my fingers that the administration says something to me about my skirt not touching my knees when I wear this because then I get to say, " they're actually shorts!" Ha! I've found a way to cheat the system :)
I remember my freshmen year of high school (which was not too long ago) there was this senior girl who I admired so much for her style. She actually went on to study fashion design at college, but that's just a little side note. Anyways, I always was so envious of the way she dressed, and one of the most memorable outfits I remember her wearing was a skirt with suspenders attached. If I remember right the skirt was polka dot, too! I was so jealous of her and vowed to myself that I would get a skirt with suspenders attached someday. I searched and searched all my freshmen year and sophomore year, and finally this summer my long journey is complete! I'm so happy I found my suspender skirt! :D

Tomorrow Matt and I are going on a little date: Hooray! Now, you must not judge me on what I'm about to say. Promise me you won't think of me as just another hopeless teenager girl? Okay, good. Well, tomorrow Matt and I are going to see Eclipse, the third Twilight movie! Now, let me explain myself. I am not one of those crazily obsessed teenage girls who are in love with Edward and think he's actually real. I did read the books, yes. Once. And before they were even popular! I and actually Matt really enjoying going to see the movies the books are made into. Yes, my boyfriend likes the Twilight movies! (although he refuses to read the books, but I don't blame him. That would ruin his manly-ness....) I'm very excited because Matt and I don't get to do anything really different or special with each other too often. Of course, I'm dressing up for he occassion and I'll make sure to post pictures of my outfit!
Oh, and Friday Matt and I are going somewhere even MORE exciting than the movie theater. It will be a secret for now... ;)
P.S. I had to post the last picture of my cat. We're re-doing our floor and my dad tore up the old carpet and put it in the garage. My cat, Rascal, has the right idea about summer!

I think I had one of those skirts with suspender things. I feel like I had one in that pattern too, but I know for sure I wore a white with blue flowers one for my 10th birthday (16 years ago!) . I don't think I could pull it off now though. You make it look very cute and fun. Have fun watching Eclipse!

Love your dots. I am excited about seeing the movie, I enjoyed the books, but I am willing to wait until the lines of screaming adolescents dies down. My hubs is willing to wait until dvd.
